Kyoto house description

Juichi – Literally the number 11, refers to the 11 headed Bodhisattva of compassion –Kannon, which a national treasure statue of her is enshrined in the near by temple Rokuharamitsuji.

The house is located in a neighborhood where secular and religious are interweaving into a fascinating puzzle. Rich in culture and history, from the dancing saint Kuya to the palaces of the Taira and Minamoto- The strongest Samurai families of the time ( 12th century). It is the ground of one of the most known episodes of Japanese history, the battle between the Taira and the Minamoto which is still a very popular story in many Noh, Kabuki plays as well Japanese TV dramas to the present day.

The neighborhood around the house is very active and welcoming. It offers a great deal of insight into the every day life of the people in an area less known to visitors. This ensures a very local experience “out of the beaten tracks”, yet in the middle of town. It is a great base for experiencing local daily life which yet living the tradition and heritage of the area through many temples Shrines and local spots.

There is railway stn & 24hr convenience stores, big local supermarket within 10 mins walk and variety of restaurants, cafes around, while the house remains perfectly quite and secluded!

                                  The Location of the house is absolutely great- 15 min walk to Gion the famous Geisha area 5 min walk to Miyagawa-cho, another, less known Geisha area, yet charming and cozy, 10-15 min to downtown, 10 min to the Lovely area of Kiyomizu and the picturesque street on the eastern mountains. Conveniently located to bus and train line -the Gion Shijo or Gojo stations on the Keihan line.

                                  Yet the location of the house, deep in a narrow alley, keeps it quite and private.
